The gang is back! Baseball and the Pittsburgh Pirates well, not quite yet.

In this second lockout episode of Rum Bunter Radio the Crew discusses a range of Pittsburgh Pirates topics from where the lockout currently stands, to the large haul of international signees from this past week.

International players on some teams are everything. If you look at baseball’s current superstars you’ll find many made the decision to play for their team before they even turned 17 years old.

The guys give their thoughts on this year’s class in relation to baseball, and predict which players will get to the big league club first.

The discussion shifts the current state of baseball, and what to expect now that players and owners are finally meeting consistently.

When will this lockout end? Is a full season still possible? What does the game look like on the other side of this CBA?

These questions and more are addressed as the guys give their thoughts on which rule changes could end certain financial inequalities in the game of baseball.
